DISPLAY_LAST_LOGIN in /etc/security/default versus PrintLastLog in /opt/ssh/etc/sshd

DISPLAY_LAST_LOGIN prints the date and time of the last user login when a user logs in interactively.

 

PrintLastLog appears to do the same thing (for ssh only). Excepting console logins, all of the systems at this site make exclusive use of ssh for remote connections. No telnet, ftp, etc.

 

So the assumption is that the only time DISPLAY_LAST_LOGIN will apply is during console login. Is this correct?

 

Thanks.

Yes, that's exactly as I thought as well. I simply have a difficult time convincing other people until they see it coming from someone else.

 

Thanks, Steven.
